Our organically crafted Ashwagandha Oil is made in the authentic traditional Ayurvedic way from the Withania somnifera roots [Family: Solanaceae] in a base of Organic Sesame Oil, which is vata pacifying. Commonly called Indian Ginseng and Winter Cherry, the roots and leaves of the Ashwagandha plant are most commonly used for their medicinal properties, and it's the presence of Withanolides, a group of steroidal lactones, that contribute to the herb's health benefits.

The literal meaning of the word Ashwagandha is smell of horse because the fresh roots of the herb are said to smell like a horse and, as the story goes, it's believed that when you consume Ashwagandha, you may develop the strength and vitality of a horse as well. In Latin, the species name: Somnifera can be translated as sleep-inducing.

In Ayurvedic medicine, ashwagandha is characterized as a rasayana which means that it's used to promote your physical and mental health, to defend your body against disease and damaging environmental factors, and to slow down the aging process. In India, Ashwagandha has been used as a broad-spectrum remedy for centuries, but more recently scientists have proven that the herb possesses anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that play a major role in many of its benefits.

REPORTED BENEFITS

Ashwagandha Oil is a deeply penetrating and warming oil that nourishes the bones, muscles and tissues. Ashwagandha has a carminative effect on the nervous system promoting relaxation whilst also toning and strengthening the nerves. Ashwagandha oil is good for treating tired and stressed muscles. Ashwagandha Oil is excellent for reducing Vata disorders such as nerve or muscle pain, poor circulation, debility and anxiety.

Ashwagandha Oil is also extremely nourishing and restores the skin's natural suppleness and elasticity and is excellent for dry or dehydrated skin and prevention of wrinkles. It is also helpful for relieving skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.

Safety-Although ashwagandha (typically taken for anxiety or stress) are generally well-tolerated when taken short-term (weeks to a few months) in typical dosages, mild to moderate side effects such as headache, sleepiness, and stomach upset have been reported in clinical studies. Rarely, allergic reactions and rapid heartbeat have been reported. There are no long-term studies on the safety of ashwagandha supplements.

Be aware, however, that ashwagandha can potentially lower blood pressure and blood sugar, and increase thyroid hormone levels.
